Subject: A Good Film it is...
Abbot & Costello in a funny trip to Africa whilst trying to get the girl and the diamonds. Don't expect mindless 2000's comedy with recipeed laughter. This is the real thing 1949 style. Watch it and laugh.
This is seriously lame. Is just isn't funny. I used to laugh at these two as a kid so haven't watched one of their films for at least 20 years. I wanted to like it but it's rubbish. Imagine going to a really awful pantomime with the kids in the school holidays and having to put up with cheesey jokes you can see coming a mile off for what seems like forever. That's what it's like watching this film. Don't.

A reviewer below wanted to convert this mp4 file to a DVD. This batch file works for me; I tested it with "Detour" which was downloaded from this site. You'll need ffmpeg and dvdAuthor.

goto end )
if not "%3"=="" set dvd_aspect=%3
echo Aspect ratio being used is %dvd_aspect%.
if %dvd_aspect%==4:3 (
echo You may give 16:9 as the 3rd argument on the command line.
ffmpeg -i %1 -target ntsc-dvd -aspect %dvd_aspect% "%~n1.mpg"

dvdauthor -o "%~2/" -t "%~n1.mpg"

Fast-paced Bud & Lou vehicle featuring appearances by Shemp Howard, Joe Besser, animal "tamer" Clyde Beatty and others.
'Fraidy-cat Lou passes himself off as a big game hunter in order to (what else?) win the heart of a gorgeous dame. She, of course, has her own villainous plans...involving a map, a trip to darkest Africa, and the disposal of our hapless heroes.
I already have a copy of this movie, so I can't comment on the professed download problems. But if you can get it to work properly, you're in for a real treat.

Subject: why no mpg1 files?
the derivation engine can not derive from mp4 files
